Remove Accra as national capital- Mr Eric Oduro Osae

Some governance experts have called for the removal of Accra as the national capital of Ghana.

According to them, Accra is densely populated and not conducive as a national capital.

Mr Eric Oduro Osae, spokesperson for the group of governance experts speaking in interview with Accra-based Neat TV said Accra is choked and deserves to made the commercial or economic city of the country.

He said Accra as it stands if not properly managed will spell doom for the country going forward.

He was of the view that the ongoing population and National Census programme by the Ghana Statistical Service will give a data on the actual population of the country to push for the creation of administrative capital.

At this stage Ghana needs administrative capitals like Nigeria did with Lagos to Abuja and Ivory Coast did with Abidjan to Yamoussoukro.

According to him, this will lead to the creation of a National Administrative Capital to spearhead the processes for the creation of an administrative capital.

He strongly said Ghana needs to look for the money and start the processes by engaging all stakeholders.  

He argued for an administrative capital that should located outside Accra to enable better manage crisis when its occurs.

As it stands now Accra is sitting on a timebomb that must be salvage the situation or it will soon explode.
